EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) of 2021 provides new state regulations designed to streamline the process for a homeowner to create a duplex or subdivide an existing lot.

The proposed ordinance considered with this action will establish objective development standards for the City when it comes to processing such urban lot splits and reviewing two-unit housing developments allowed by SB 9. Currently, only the general standards outlined in state law are applicable within the community.
